are up twice what they used to be. these are tough years for the middle class and for the poor in america. and if we calculate it, by the way, our unemployment rate in a way that was consistent with the way it was calculated when he came into office, be a different number. if the number of people shall the percentage of the american population in the work force were the same today as the day he was elected, unemployment rate would be above 11%, this is inexcusable in a nation so prosperous of ours, that four years of a presidency has not been able to get america back on track. he can't, he doesn't know now, i know now and i'll get the job done. >> a bet that most of the other states will be ignored. only eight states in the rest of these 30 days, that's it because that's where the candidates are going to have to put down their stakes and mitt romney needs to win florida. if he loses florida, that means he needs to win every other swing state in a sweep which seems highly unlikely, although if you look at the polls, the same thing goes for ohio right now. if mitt romney loses ohio he has t
